same name as christopher nolan. is there any relation. >> there is not. i wish there was because my bank account would go up really qui quickly. i'll have to work on that and then i could be like head crack, too, since that would be a jackpot for me. it's awesome talking to you. there might be residuals waiting for you somewhere in unclaimed account that you just unaware of. >> i'll get right on that the moment we say goodbye here. listen, thanks so much head crack. good to talk to you. good to talk to you. >> dish nation part of the late night lineup on fox 29. iain. >> alabama voter was arrested after showing up at the polls with a gun investigators say robert kennedy had the weapon visible when he gotta church polling place. this is not the first time for the gun rights activist. kennedy was turned away during the june primary election but he was out to vote with the gun in a july run off. >> a trick or treater in california found a bag of crystal meth in her halloween candy.
now police are trying to figure out who would do such a thing. the eight year old's parents were checking her candy when they found it. they thought it was suspicious looking they called police. officers ran tests confirming she was given the drug. her father does not think it's a coincidence saying she dressed as a police officer and maybe someone was sending them a message and here's why she thinks it may have happened. >> 'cause there's bad people in the world and they can curt children like that and that's mean. >> police say the girl went to at least 20 houses so it will be difficult to pinpoint where the drugs came from but they are checking the bag now for fingerprints. >> caught on camera, a vandal in santa bash remark, check this out. this is -- making a fool out of himself video you saw him shows the guy walking upstairs, kic kicking a potted plant, however that kick, it diagnosed back and he fell down the stairs. falls again. i'm out of here. he runs away.
police are still trying to figure out who this guy is. >> potted plant weighs more than him probably. >> he's thirty two lucky that potted plant didn't like knock over on him. on top of him. crazy. >> well, temperatures today made it into the 70s again. >> wow! >> two days in row. last time for awhile. changes ahead. rain will be moving in. temperatures will be dropping. but as we look at ultimate doppler right now. it's pretty dry and quiet. there might be an early sprinkle this evening but most of that heavy rain holds off until after midnight as i expand the view you can see to our south that's where we're tracking most of the rainfall toward middleton and moving into kentucky. but temperatures still above average low 60s right now. 61 degrees in philadelphia. winds out of west at about 5 miles per hour. but look at the high today. 72 degrees. 12 degrees above the average but the record it's safe, 80 degrees set back in 1975. temperatures in the upper 50s to right around 60 degrees.
60 in atlantic city with low 50s in allentown. we have upper 50s right now in wilmington. so still pretty comfortable if you're stepping outdoors because we're out ahead of that front. now, most of the rainfall as i mentioned is still well to our south. we do have the cloud cover overhead. we'll keep the clouds but that rainfall as we time everything out you can see the clock by midnight most of that rain starts to move in to the west of the philadelphia area. so we'll zoom in a little clos closer. watch how things play out by 4:00 in the morning we're looking at some of that moderate to heavy rain so the early commute is going to be damp and dreary and also as we move toward 8:00 o'clock when you're watching good day still watching for the rainfall across the area. so allow some extra travel time tomorrow morning. by midday we're looking at a little bit of a lull across the area for the afternoon but then for the evening commute, it look like more scatter showers will be moving in with this system and then most of the rain starts to finally taper off as we move toward your friday morning time frame and then winds of change
moving in, too. it's going to be a little colder. as we watch how much rainfall to anticipate you can see on average about an inch of rainfall along i-95 as well as north and west. lesser amounts once you move into south jersey. so the bottom line on and off again showers for your thursday. likely a wet commute for the morning. and also the evening and up to an inch of rainfall on average with the system area wide. so for tonight, temperatures in the 40s to low 50s. still pretty comfortable. and then tomorrow, we'll call it mostly cloudy. overcast on and off again showers. temperatures top out in the upper 50s. that seven day forecast showing you low 50s on friday. upper 40s on saturday. and then a little bit of a rebound as we move toward veterans day and then temperatures crash by wednesday of next week only in the 40s for highs. >> at least we're prepare. thank you, scott. (laughter). >> howard? >> hi. hello. >> how are you? football time an lot of changes for the eagl
eagles. first let me clear up a story surprising enough on the internet. new jersey.com sources supposedly told this reporter that the eagles coaches were already talking about making a change at quarterback before the nick foles injury. now, i talked to people and the eagles organization including coaches. that was never discussed. there are lots of new parts in what the eagles are doing in practice getting ready for carolina here on monday. today was the first day of prep for that game and the changes are on both offense and defense. today, the first time this season that mark sanchez that heart throb the starting quarterback for the eagles. it does make a difference getting all the first team reps with his offense. >> familiar feeling. i'm thankful for that that i've had experience before. you know, nothing really changes to be honest with me preparation. i'm going to get a couple more reps obviously during the week. but my focus hasn't changed. >> don't expect the eagles
offense to change with mark sanchez. >> we can call a game in a very similar way regardless of whether nick or mark are playing quarterback for us. so we did it the other night. you know, nick or mark came in in backup role and we didn't call the game any differently than if nick was in there. >> i think he'll be fine. another player for the eagles is back on the offensive line, evan mathis has played since game one much this will be his first game back at left guard. >> we have to be able to overcome any type of adversity thrown our way. over the course of the season it won't ab cake walk and things aren't always going to your way and we dealt a lot of with adversity thus far this season. i think this team has handled it very well. >> i think the biggest area of concern for the eagles is on the defensive side of the football. they have lost their middle linebacker demeco ryans for the season. not only has he played terrific he's maybe the biggest leader on that defense. so others have to try to pick it up much casey mathis will start at middle linebacker and rotate
with emmanuel ocho there are other players that need to step up. michael kendricks will have to be one of the new leaders on defense and he says not to do too much. >> make sure you keep of one else calm and collected and make sure we play good ball. i'm not putting too much pressure on myself, man. i'm going to do what i do and that's play good ball. you know, i'm not -- i'm not going to go out there and freak out and just think that, you know, everything has changed, you know, the world is about to end. you know what i mean we're about to go out there and play good ball. >> the biggest thing, they have to make sure that they don't make mistakes on defense as we well, and wrong assignments going into the wrong gap a lot of different things, but they can win -- they can win and continue to win with the new guys they have in there. >> all right. thanks, howard. >> you got it. >> coming up at six more video release dad of a man philadelphia police are calling a person of interest in the kidnapping of a young woman. the case making national headlines heats up. >> a man walks into a local pizza shop apparently planning to rob the place.
